, not in the south of france, but in martha's vineyard and that has triggered the expected criticism from corners of capitol hill. of course who are the middle of a five-week vacation. "usa today" is reporting the first family is going to be staying at the $7 million home of a top democratic donor and, of course, bill clinton also vacationed in martha's vineyard during his time in the white house but he famously and i know that gene will remember this and ed will remember this, he famously switched his vacation destination after dick morris took polls to see which vacation spots would be better and they found out that wyoming, surprisingly enough, is better than martha's vineyard. nantucket is better than martha's vineyard but i don't think you'll find that in the poll. "usa today" is remibdsing us this morning franklin roosevelt was criticized for spending time on his yacht. john adams spent seven months in quincy, massachusetts, on his farm in 1797 and actually accused of abdicating his office and that criticism didn't help his bid for the second term. now, for republicans who are ready to poun

will have on martha's vineyard in massachusetts. local fishing reports i checked today seems to indicate maybe martha's vineyard is hoarding the striped bass this summer since none are make it down the cape. president gets eight days at martha's vineyard for august vacation which is not fair because i don't think he fishes. august is supposed to be recess time for congress. look at them rushing to leave last week, bolting for the exits. get me out of here. august recess time in congress used to mean vacation, right? time off from politics. now it means congress rushes home not to vacation, but to the screaming town halls. orchestrated for maximum confrontational youtube ability. this newly shoutty political august can be fun as far as politics goes as long as you're not the one being screamed at. if you're not just a back bencher, if you're in the congressional leadership, you actually have more to deal with right now than just the crazy town hall think. recess for the leadership means traveling all over the country to raise money for the most vulnerable members of your caucus. so it's o
to vacation after this news conference and spend a week on martha's vineyard and comes back to confront a certifies of tough fights with his republican rivals on capitol hill. he better rest up because it looks like it's going to be tough out there, doesn't it? >> not just that but within his own democratic party he is going to face a lot of pressure if there is no immigration deal to try to implement some of the immigration legislation by executive order. i think, you know, also, again, with republicans who got these budget fights is the government going to continue to operate or get shut down or are we going to lift the debt ceiling at some point this fall or could there be a default? is there a lot brewing as you suggest. on top of all that the implementation of obama care beginning october 1st right as the government set to shut down. people are allowed to start enrolling then. i think you've really got to sort potentially clammist version of events here for the president and he should get rest on the vacation because it's going to be a wild ride this fall. >> susan, let me bring yo
for the "side show." president obama back in washington, of course, after taking a week off in martha's vineyard. and the "late show's" david letterman commemorated with this video last night. >> let's put together a segment about memorable presidential vacations. and we've got it for you tonight, memorable presidential vacations throughout the year. i hope you enjoy this. ♪ >> wow. now i see why he had the big hat. >> well, the president also introduced the newest member of his family and another portuguese water dog named sonny. almost every president has had a pet. there's only been one first dog who has lived in the white house under two different presidents. spotty and then had the good fortune to return again with george w. bush when he became president in 2001. so two presidents for that dog. however, the most famous by far of all the dogs in the white house is fala, the scottish terrier. mgm even made a movie about him called fala at hyde park in technicolor. it's over near the tidal basin. and that's something for sunny, of course, to aspire to. look at that big dog. that's "hardball"
. >> coming up, the president's headed off to martha's vineyard for nine days so he wants to get some things on the record first. and it's not unusual to see these end of summer news conferences. let's talk about some of the issues that may come up. russia for certain, this is the first time that we will have heard from the president publicly since the white house announced that meeting, that one-on-one summit with russian president vladimir putin has been cancelled. what does the president think about that and how does he move the white house forward? also how big of a deal was giving asylum to edward snowden and how is the u.s. going to continue to try to get him back, that is very likely to come up. not to mention these terror threats, the new one you mentioned that shut down the consulate there and the earlier one that shut down 19 embassyings and consul lalts. >>> and a quick programming note, msnbc will have life coverage of the presidential news conference at 3:00 p.m. eastern time. now it's time for your live look. when it comes to keeping your friends close and your enemies closer,
, president obama heads to orlando before he arrives here in martha's vineyard. the president and the first lady will be speaking to disabled veterans. the first lady has really made helping veterans one of her signature issues. so we expect the president and first lady to focus on issues that are facing disabled veterans and also to talk about one of the issues, the backlog of veterans waiting for their benefits. florida has been a state particularly hard hit. a large number of veterans have been waiting for their benefits for 125 days or longer. that fits into the larger neck on the economy. we expect them to address the issue of jobs for vets as well in orlando. the president, sort of with all of this aiming to have the final word before he does begin his vacation here in marthas vineyard and gearing up for the fiscal fights. we saw that factor into his news conference yesterday. he sort of dared republicans to shut down the government over defunding health care laws. they want to defund obama care. first, everyone goes on vacation. >> absolutely. but not before we, by the way, we'll hav
, and from there to martha's vineyard for their annual summer vacation. the president didn't take one last year, because he was out on the campaign trail. i have traveled with the president on a number of hi vacations, martin. they're usually not that restful, at least for the press corps. >> indeed. thank you very much. >>> turning to the congress, i want to bring in senator sheldon whitehouse. good afternoon, sir. >> good afternoon. >> we've spent two years being told that the affordable care act is in fact the four horsemen the apocalypse that will bring death, destruction, famine upon the nation. is that right, sir? >> i think the exact opposite is true. we've seen families across the country enjoy the benefits of added coverage. we're about to see fair, level, transparent markets for insurance that give consumers a real short, start to open up. across the country we've seen the delivery system reform parts of the bill save lives and improve the quality of care. >>> each year we hear another collision in the constituency between a republican and the voting public. do you thinks this is
continues to have a bad summer while on vacation in martha's vineyard. it definitely doesn't make snowden a hero or whistleblower or patriot. if we can get our hands on him, he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. >> perry, this morning, snowden's father urged his son to demand a public trial instead of coming home. >> at this point, what i would like is for this to be vetted in open court for the american people to have all of the facts. what i've seen is much political theater. >> ron snowden there. perry, what are the chances that the federal government would allow a public trial of edward snowden? >> i'm not sure. i think if he came back to the sufficient he probably would have a trial. the question would be, he vie laid the law, no question, whether he's a whistleblower or a traitor or something else, he violated the law. i think the question for snowden would be, if he comes back here, he's certainly going to be convicted of violating the law. and a public trial, we're discussing national security matters i think is very unlikely to happen. so i think his father is
for egypt. >> so the president breaks a vacation, makes an address from martha's vineyard on thursday. talk about what he said. are we doing the right thing? are we doing enough? >> i would have called it a coup six weeks ago. in terms of democracy in the middle east has been -- that credibility has been lost. that said, the united states is going to have influence only on the margins. perhaps it can draw boundaries around which the military has to operate. by not calling it a coup, we signal we're going to learn with whatever ultimately emerges in terms of a new government in egypt. >> p.j., if we were to label this a coup, that would mean we would have to stop funding any sort of military aid, any sort of humanitarian aid support to egypt. is that true? >> well, it is true. that's why the administration has largely decided they're not going to decide. and barring some sort of horrific -- >> what is that getting us right now? the money that we are supplying to egypt, what is that doing for the united states's interests there? >> well, the united states looks at the egyptian military as the
one. they are on their way to martha's vineyard where they will vacation for the next week. the president made one final stop in orlando this afternoon to speak at the disabled veterans national convention. >> at every generation there are americans like you who stand beside her and guide her and protect her. we need to make sure we've got the resources, the budget s our veterans deserve. >> the orlando event comes on the heels of yesterday's wide-ranging news conference at the white house. the president unveiled the series of proposals aimed at restoring public confidence in the government's secret surveillance programs. plan that the president said was in the works before edward snowden leaked secret nsa documents to the press. >> there's no doubt that mr. snowden's leaks triggered a much more rapid and passionate response. i actually think we would have gotten to the same place and we would have done so without putting at risk our national security. >> nbc's kristen welker is live at martha's vineyard where the president is expected to arrive shortly. kristen, good to se
. for more, let's go to nbc's chris kin welker live from martha's vineyard. i understand the news today is the nsa is pushing back against a new report they violated rules thousands of times. what can you tell us about the nsa's response? >> joy, i can tell you that the nsa is holding a conference call as we speak. i ran outside after having listened to part of that call to give you the latest information. it's being conducted by jim delong, the director of compliance with the nsa. and so far, he's made a few points in an attempt to push back against that "washington post" article. first he said no one at the nsa tolerates mistakes or thinks that mistakes are okay. when mistakes are determined they try to correct eb them as quickly as possible. he tried to put the number of mistakes into context, that report of thousands of instances, he made the point that over the course of just one month, the nsa conducts about 20 million queries. so according to mr. delong, the fraction of mistakes is really minuscule when you look at that 20 million figure. and then he also made one more point, joy
in egypt from martha's vineyard last week. and we won't be joining in military exercises with egypt. but what real power, peter, does president obama have to change what's happening on the ground in egypt? >> president obama does not have real direct power to change what's happening on the ground in egypt, but what he does have the power to do is decide how we're going to react, what the american response is going to be. and right now america gives about $1.5 billion a year in aid to cairo, $1.3 billion of that is military aid. and that's the kind of thing that obama could be seriously rethinking, and saying, you know, what are we getting for that money, is it in our interests, in the interests of the egyptian people. >> christine, the president's hands, are they tied? or are they not? are there options that are available to the president that we have not been talking about over the past few days? >> craig, egypt is a very important ally to the united states, which is why the president is hesitating in cutting off further economic aid. most of the military aid for this fiscal year h
. >> and then he is off to martha's vineyard for a vacation. and the mere mortals are upset because the roads are closed. >> i have no problem with president obama. if he likes to wear that little helmet and ride a bike in martha's vineyard, that's fine. >> i mean, give me a break, goldie. >> you know, president bush spent more time on the crawford ranch i believe than he actually spent in the white house. so if we want to talk about vacations, we should first talk about the last commander in chief. this president has every right to take a vacation. he has every right to play basketball or any other hobby that he may have or play golf, just as speaker boehner does. these kinds of assaults on the president i think again are due to what i call obama derangement syndrome. they just can't believe that an african-american man is afforded the same rights as any other white president who has held that office. >> rev, quickly, the congress is also on vacation. >> no. >> sure. >> they've had one vote on jobs-related legislation, not on the mortgage thing that the president was talking about this week.
on all of today's headlines, we're joined by nbc's kristin welker in martha's vineyard, nbc's michelle kosinski in cairo. i want to get a sense how closely we know the president is following this back and forth over the plan he introduced on friday. already we noted senior republicans are criticizing him, warning his plan could account an actually slow anti-terrorism efforts. >> as you mentioned, this is a working vacation. his national security adviser susan rice is here with him on martha's vineyard. he's getting briefed regularly on a whole host of topics. including, you would have to assume, the ongoing debate about his government surveillance programs. as you point out, republicans -- they really went after the president, arguing that he hasn't done a good job of explaining the program. that is why there are these problems really getting the public on board, and will worry that ultimately it is sort of draining and limiting his ability and the government's ability to fight terrorism. so that is what republicans have been saying. democrats, he's getting some criticism from them as
. while vacationing on martha's vineyard, president obama couldn't escape a moment of frustration on the golf course. back in washington, more troubles await the commander in chief. lawmakers are criticizing the president's plan. >> he has failed to explain the programs which are lawful, which have saved lives. >> we need to do better in educating our public. >> reporter: the former director of the nsa, said that added oversight could -- >> you need to be careful how many processes you put in there. >> reporter: the leaks seem to have pushed u.s./russia relations to a post cold war low. president obama has canceled a meeting with russian president vladimir putin, originally scheduled for next month. some lawmakers want a stronger gesture. >> mr. putin does not have united states/russia relationships in any priority. that's the way to treat mr. putin. >> reporter: snowden's father continues to defend his son, who he is preparing to visit in russia, after recently securing the papers he needs to travel. some analysts argue that the president shouldn't be tougher on russia but should
supporters of the muslim brotherhood this week alone. we go live to martha's vineyard where president obama continues his vacation. any sign from the administration of what they will or even perhaps what they will not do next? >> well, craig, good afternoon. the administration at this point is not signaling any major shift in policy when it comes to egypt. we know that president obama has been briefed daily by his national security adviser susan rice, who is vacationing here on martha's vineyard with him. and of course this past week president obama announced that he would be canceling joint military operations between the u.s. and egypt that were scheduled to take place next month. this was a strong, symbolic rebuke to military for their inability to really get this situation under control in egypt and to get the unrest under control in egypt. but what the administration has not announced is that they will be withholding or withdrawing that $1.3 billion in military aid that they give to egypt every year, and that is really the united states' largest point of leverage at this point in time.
, d.c. >> just extraordinary pictures. thank you so much. >>> president obama is on his way to martha's vineyard. let's listen to his message of inspiration to those severely injured in combat. >> maybe you lost your sight but you can still see the truth that our disabled veterans make extraordinary contributions to our country every single day. maybe you lost an arm but you still have the strength to pick up a friend or neighbor in need. maybe you lost a leg but you still stand tall for the values and freedoms that make america the greatest nation on earth. >> white house correspondent kristen welker is on martha's vineyard. that was one of the most poignant points right there. i got all choked up. what are take aways? >> reporter: he have hoping to drive the narrative before he leave for vacation. today he map out ways in which his administration can do a better job of serving veterans. one way is investing in research. he announced a hundred million dollars to prevent traumatic brain injury and lower the rates of suicide. he talked about the importance of helping veterans succeed w
with republicans. he already made several trips prior to his vacation here in martha's vineyard talking about housing, decreasing corporate tax rates, ways to invest in infrastructure projects. this trip next week will be part of that larger series trying to bet the upper hand and undoubtedly more contentious debates and budget battles coming up. >> that dolphins meeting, four decades in the making. i want to ask you at the rnc chairman he's talking fresh off of his organize's meeting. what is he saying today? >> reporter: he's defending his party basically against sort of these allegations that there's so much infighting and that the party is divided right now. he made the argument that at this summit they had a robust debate, that they emerged from this summit energized. here's a little bit of what he had to say earlier today. >> healthy family debate is not a bad thing at all and i really believe that. i don't think at a time when we just came off of a presidential election that having a party that is just dull and boring is something that is good for not just our party but for this count
, fresh off his week-long vacation on martha's vineyard. of course he faces a tough fight as he tries to sell his economic proposals to congress and also solve the budget crisis. >> but the president -- debbie wasserman schultz. we were -- the republican party feels like they need to get their act together, moving into a presidential election. what is it that the democrats need to do on that front as they battle things like scandals, with a san diego mayor what are the kinds of things that you're focusing on as you move into the next presidential race. >> as i listen to shaun spicer talk about the republican national committee meeting last week. >> in support of comprehensive -- hispanic vote last year to president obama and doubling down on opposition to a path to citizenship certainly is not the way to win the hearts and minds of the hispanic community. so we're focused this week on moving forward, focusing on what the american people shows last year, which was fighting for the middle class, helping to rebuild our economy and making sure that we can have everybody have an opportunit
martha's vineyard where the president is enjoying rest and relaxation between strategy on his fall agenda. take a look at the photo we got from the white house with the briefing between susan rice. apparently the dress code is athletic gear. a weekend break with time on the greens. it appears he needs work with his short game. yep, a little bit of that. still doesn't help. we'll be right back. what are you doing? oh, hey. using night-vision goggles to keep an eye on my spicy buffalo wheat thins. who's gonna take your wheat thins? i don't know. an intruder, the dog, bigfoot. could you get the light?

intelligence. >>> kristen welker is in martha vineyards where president obama is vacationing. what are lawmakers saying to you about this latest threat? >> reporter: alex, good day to you. lawmakers seem to be on the same page. closing the 19 embassies was the right move because it pointed to the fact that al qaeda was planning either one large explosion or a series of explosions. here's a little bit more on that from congressman peter king. take a listen. >> the intelligence that i saw here was at least as powerful as anything i've seen since 9/11, probably the closest would be the liquid explosive plot out of london in 2006. but this was very credible. it was corroborated and spoke of a massive attack and to me was the right thing to do. >> now, alex, some republicans did use the closure of those 19 embassies to attack president obama's foreign policy center. john mccain making a point that the peninsula has gotten much stronger in recent years and also argue that it's an indication that president obama hasn't been strong enough in terms of combatting that growing presence and th
. the first family is on vacation in martha's vineyard. this is their fourth vacation trip to the island. they skipped last year in the midst of the 2012 campaign. the president, he hit the links with the press pool watching both yesterday and today. i notice that this morning drudge was leading with a story that talked about the arrival of bo, the family dog via an osprey helicopter, the number of hotel rooms needed for secret service, and the presence of a mesh bag filled with basketballs in the luggage. criticizing a president's vacation, especially this president's vacation has become a rite of summer. to learn more of the facts, today i chatted with mark knoller. he is the white house correspondent for cbs news, but he is more than that. he is the go-to statistician for presidential behavior, and he often shares his data with colleagues, sometimes with the presidents themselves. he maintains lists of literally everything the commander in chief does, from bill signings to pardons, vetoes, air force one flights, marine one trips and vacation destinations, even church attendance. you s

with his family in martha's vineyard. joining me live is kelly o'donnell. there's a lot on the plate when the reporters get the opportunity to ask the president questions. but is it true that the president is going to come out with some type of his own statement about where he wants to go with the nsa controversy and the transparency going on with its oversight. >> yes, thomas. we've been working our sources within the administration and on capitol hill. we have a bit of a picture of what the president plans to do. he can go on offense, anticipating, i'm sure, about the nsa leaks and the programs that the intelligence community has been undertaking to collect data and so forth. by going on offense, the president is expected to announce that he has plans to take steps to make reforms to some of those programs. with the intention of bringing greater transparency and to build more public confidence. these will be new steps, and he will lay them out in the specifics, but that's the overarching idea, how to create more confidence when there have been so many questions in the public about what

this comes as the president is getting ready to leave for vacation. he's going to martha's vineyard with the family for ten days. there's a disappointment factor. he doesn't have immigration reform or notches on his belt if you will on domestic legislation before leaving. >> and look, i think if he said at the start of the year by august would president obama have something to point to to say we reacted to newtown, it seems like rearview mirror now. we talked about that every day. could some kind of gun control measure pass? everyone expected something to pass. how broad that might be we didn't know but he doesn't have that immigration is now on the timetable that looks like end of the year maybe for house passage. conference committee doesn't get there. path to citizenship a fraught legislative path. there aren't the early second term accomplishments that i think many of us thought he might be able to wrack up given that he's coming off what is a larger than expected victory in november 2012. picking up seats in the senate. picking up seats his party had in the house. 332 electoral
it of mice. ♪ we open a new week with the president back in d.c. after a family vacation on martha's vineyard facing questions how his administration will handle two vital concerns to the nation. internationally, there's still a question of how america should respond to the violence against protesters in egypt as well as reports that the military-controlled government may soon release former dictator hosni hugh barak from prison. we'll have more in just a moment. but first, the president returns as d.c. and the nation prepare to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic march on washington for jobs and freedom. half a century later, the questions about race and criminal justice raised by that march still face the country. including in the form of controversial stop and frisk programs. a federal judge declared new york city's programs unconstitutional last week. however, at a news conference on a major gun bust today, new york city mayor michael bloomberg again stood front and center to defend the practice. >> generally, it's believed by law enforcement people that without this tactic, th

the president is engaging. he came out during his vacation on martha's vineyard, spoke on thursday. this is part of what he said. >> we've sustained our commitment to egypt and its people, but while we want to sustain our relationship with egypt, our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. >> so, ratchets up the pressure, senator ayotte, but is the president more or less on the sidelines or do you think he's been doing the right thing? >> well, i agreed with his suspension of the military exercise, obviously, his condemnation of the violence, but i think he fell short when he really didn't come out and call out the real question on the suspension of aid, because that is the real influence that we have with egypt. so i thought that he could have been stronger on that coming very clearly against the violence and saying we're going to suspend aid until you restore democracy. >> so, the question for me, senator reed, is what is it that the united states really wants to stand up for right now? i go back to the m
